* In ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', Zero's Dragon is [[spoiler:Santa]], who does almost all of the dirty work, mainly because [[spoiler:Zero is in a loop that decides her existence, which is the reason for the game]].
** In addition, the "Eternal Ones" have their own powerful race of "Heralds", who would've been another Dragon if not for the fact that the Eternal Ones are [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien infinitely strong]] to begin with.

* In {{VideoGame/Battletoads}}, [[{{Cyborg}} Robo-Manus]] is generally considered this to the [[BigBad Dark Queen]], being generally depicted as her most dangerous minion, both in terms of story and gameplay. He's even served as a {{Final Boss}} in her stead for two of the series' games.

** In the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' series, C. Viper was initially shown as Seth's Dragon, being made the head of S.I.N.'s Battle Suit project--but she was then revealed to be [[TheMole a double-agent working for the CIA]]. ''Super Street Fighter IV'' then introduced Juri Han as Seth's de-facto Dragon [[spoiler:[[DragonWithAnAgenda With an Agenda]]]].
* In the ''StreetsOfRage'' series, Shiva usually takes the role of TheDragon, most notably in the final showdown as Mr. X's bodyguard in the second game, and again in ''Streets of Rage III'' [[spoiler:in one of the Bad Endings of the game]]. In the fan-made remake, his biography states that he also serves as Mr. X's chief assassin.

* In the freeware game ''VideoGame/CaveStory'', Misery serves as the Dragon to the ''BigBad'', the Doctor, and she and Balrog form a ''QuirkyMinibossSquad'' of sorts, most of the quirkiness coming from Balrog. Misery, however, doesn't have any real loyalty towards the Doctor, and she and Balrog [[spoiler:are simply bound to serve the wearer of the Demon Crown. In the hidden best ending of the game, she sends Balrog to save Quote and Curly from certain death after they destroy the source of the Crown's power.]]

** On a smaller scale, many of the local main antagonists of individual eras have a distinct Dragon of their own. Azala had the hulking brute Nizbel for a bodyguard, never mind that his pet Black Tyrano was practically a literal dragon. Dalton plays this role for Queen Zeal [[spoiler:and takes a crack at becoming the new king after she leaves for bigger and better things.]] Ozzie is an odd variation in that while he is indisputably Magus' right-hand man and field general, he is also a coward who flees and hides behind his goons whenever there is real danger.
